In this procedure proteins are first separated by gel electrophoresis (usually agarose), then made visible by immunodiffusion of specific antibodies. A distinct elliptical precipitin arc results for each protein detectable by the antisera.
Chemical analysis based on the phenomenon whereby light, passing through a medium with dispersed particles of a different refractive index from that of the medium, is attenuated in intensity by scattering. In turbidimetry, the intensity of light transmitted through the medium, the unscattered light, is measured. In nephelometry, the intensity of the scattered light is measured, usually, but not necessarily, at right angles to the incident light beam.

Serum globulins that migrate to the gamma region (most positively charged) upon ELECTROPHORESIS. At one time, gamma-globulins came to be used as a synonym for immunoglobulins since most immunoglobulins are gamma globulins and conversely most gamma globulins are immunoglobulins. But since some immunoglobulins exhibit an alpha or beta electrophoretic mobility, that usage is in decline.

A nonlinear electrophoretic technique used to separate a variety of ionic compounds, ranging from small metal ions to large molecules like proteins. Unlike "linear" zone electrophoresis in which separating solute bands continually spread by diffusion or dispersion, isotachophoresis forms self-sharpening, adjacent zones of substantially pure solute whose concentrations often exceed several mgs/ml. In isotachophoresis a multianalyte sample is introduced between the leading electrolyte and the terminating electrolyte where the sample ions have lower electrophoretic mobilities than the leading ion but larger than the terminating ion.

Hemoglobin Providence. A human hemoglobin variant occurring in two forms in vivo. (1/477)

Hemoglobin Providence Asn and Hemoglobin Providence Asp are two abnormal hemoglobins which apparently arise from a single genetic change that substitutes asparagine for lysine at position 82 (EF6) in the beta chain of human hemoglobin. The second form appears to be thr result of a partial in vivo deamidation of the asparagine situated at position beta 82. Cellulose acetate and citrate agar electrophoresis of hemolysates from patients with this abnormality shows three bands. Globin chain electrophoresis at acid and alkaline pH shows three beta chains. These three chains correspond to the normal beta A chain and two abnormal beta chains. Sequence analysis indicates that the two abnormal chains differ from beta A at only position beta 82. In the two abnormal chains, the residue which is normally lysine is substituted either by asparagine or by aspartic acid. These substitutions are notable because beta 82 lysine is one of the residues involved in 2,3-diphosphoglycerate binding. Additionally, beta 82 lysine is typically invariant in hemoglobin beta chain sequences. Sequence data on the two forms of Hemoglobin Providence are given in this paper. The functional properties of these two forms are described in the next paper.  (+info)

Effects of a frequent apolipoprotein E isoform, ApoE4Freiburg (Leu28-->Pro), on lipoproteins and the prevalence of coronary artery disease in whites. (2/477)

Different isoforms of apoE modulate the concentrations of plasma lipoproteins and the risk for atherosclerosis. A novel apoE isoform, apoE4Freiburg, was detected in plasma by isoelectric focusing because its isoelectric point is slightly more acidic than that of apoE4. ApoE4Freiburg results from a base exchange in the APOE4 gene that causes the replacement of a leucine by a proline at position 28. Analysis of the allelic frequencies in whites in southwestern Germany revealed that this isoform is frequent among control subjects (10:4264 alleles) and is even more frequent in patients with coronary artery disease (21:2874 alleles; P=0.004; adjusted odds ratio, 3.09; 95% confidence interval, 1.20 to 7.97). ApoE4Freiburg affects serum lipoproteins by lowering cholesterol, apoB, and apoA-I compared with apoE4 (P<0.05). Our 4 apoE4Freiburg homozygotes suffered from various phenotypes of hyperlipoproteinemia (types IIa, IIb, IV, and V). In vitro binding studies excluded a binding defect of apoE4Freiburg, and in vivo studies excluded an abnormal accumulation of chylomicron remnants. ApoE4Freiburg and apoE4 accumulated to a similar extent in triglyceride-rich lipoproteins. HDLs, however, contained about 40% less apoE4Freiburg than apoE4. In conclusion, our data indicate that apoE4Freiburg exerts its possible atherogenic properties by affecting the metabolism of triglyceride-rich lipoproteins and HDL.  (+info)

Mass screening of newborn Swedish infants for alpha antitrypsin deficiency. (4/477)

During the first year of mass screening for alpha1 antitrypsin deficiency, 108,000 newborn Swedish infants were examined. The screening method and criteria used for selecting infants with alpha1 antitrypsin deficiency were reliable. The Pi Z phenotype occurred at a rate of one per 1,433 infants, and the PiZ allele frequency was .026. The Pi- allele was found in one Pi Z and one Pi S infant. The Pi- allele frequency probably was below .001.  (+info)

Red cell proteins. I. Two-dimensional mapping of human erythrocyte lysate proteins. (5/477)

Human erythrocyte lysate proteins were resolved into over 250 discrete spots by two-dimensional electrophoresis using isoelectric focusing in the first dimension and electrophoresis in the presence of sodium dodecyl sulfate, (SDS) in the second. The overwhelming excess of hemoglobin has made such analyses difficult in the past. However, with the ISO-DALT two-dimensional electrophoresis system, large numbers of red cell proteins can be mapped in the presence of hemoglobin. When hemoglobin and several other major proteins are removed by adsorption to DEAE-cellulose, additional minor components are seen, giving a total of over 275. With the use of purified preparations, the map positions of five cell enzymes or their subunits were determined: pyruvate kinase, catalase, glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase, hypoxanthine phosphoribosyltransferase, and carbonic anhydrase. The mapping techniques described complement and extend those traditionally used to find human red cell protein variants.  (+info)

Effect of overexpression of human apo A-I in C57BL/6 and C57BL/6 apo E-deficient mice on 2 lipoprotein-associated enzymes, platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase and paraoxonase. Comparison of adenovirus-mediated human apo A-I gene transfer and human apo A-I transgenesis. (6/477)

Various mechanisms may contribute to the antiatherogenic potential of apolipoprotein A-I (apo A-I) and high density lipoproteins (HDLs). Therefore, the effect of adenovirus-mediated human apo A-I gene transfer or human apo A-I transgenesis on platelet-activating factor acetylhydrolase (PAF-AH) and arylesterase/paraoxonase (PON1) was studied in C57BL/6 and C57BL/6 apo E(-/-) mice. Human apo A-I transgenesis in C57BL/6 mice resulted in a 4.2-fold (P<0.0001) increase of PAF-AH and a 1.7-fold (P=0.0012) increase of PON1 activity. The apo E deficiency was associated with a 1.6-fold (P=0.008) lower PAF-AH and a 2.0-fold (P=0.012) lower PON1 activity. Human apo A-I transgenesis in C57BL/6 apo E(-/-)mice increased PAF-AH and PON1 activity by 2.1-fold (P=0.01) and 2.5-fold (P=0.029), respectively. After adenovirus-mediated gene transfer of human apo A-I into C57BL/6 apo E(-/-)mice, a strong correlation between human apo A-I plasma levels and PAF-AH activity was observed at day 6 (r=0.92, P<0.0001). However, PON1 activity failed to increase, probably as a result of cytokine-mediated inhibition of PON 1 expression. In conclusion, this study indicates that overexpression of human apo A-I increases HDL-associated PAF-AH activity. PON1 activity was also increased in human apo A-I transgenic mice, but not after human apo A-I gene transfer, a result that was probably related to cytokine production induced in the liver by the adenoviral vectors. Increased levels of these HDL-associated enzymes may contribute to the anti-inflammatory and antioxidative potential of HDL and thereby to the protection conferred by HDL against atherothrombosis.  (+info)

Thalassaemia in northern Liberia. A survey in the Mount Nimba area. (7/477)

A population survey in northern Liberia showed an average incidence of 9 percent of beta-thalassaemia trait. There was considerable tribal variation, the highest rates being mainly found in tribes having a low incidence of Hb S. A single example of deltabeta-thalassaemia trait was also found; the incidence of delta-chain variants was 1.8 percent. The effect of malaria on Hb A2 levels was investigated but appeared to be negligible. The problems of beta-thalassaemia and Hb S occurring in the same population are discussed. It is considered that, although made on a local sample, the results of this survey indicate a high incidence of beta-thalassaemia trait elsewhere in Liberia and that this is a suitable are for investigations of linkage at beta- and delta-chain loci. No conclusion is at present possible from the data on the presence of alpha-thalassaemia although 10 percent of neonates were found to have increased levels of Hb Barts.  (+info)

Haemoglobin Lepore Boston and elliptocytosis in a family of Indonesian-German ancestry. (8/477)

A family is presented in which Hb Lepore Boston was found in six individuals over three generations. The gene must have had its origin either in Java (Indonesia) or in what is now the Federal Republic of Germany. The haemoglobin was characterized by amino-acid analysis of the six tryptic peptides that have a different composition in the beta- and the delta-chain. The ratio of glycine to alanine in position 136 of the fetal haemoglobin, which was somewhat raised in the Hb Lepore carriers, averaged 31:39. In addition an elliptocytosis gene was found, which was inherited independently from Hb Lepore; the simultaneous presence of elliptocytosis in three family members did not seem to aggravate the mild anaemia caused by Hb Lepore.  (+info)

Serum protein electrophoresis (SPEP or SPE) is a laboratory test that examines specific proteins in the blood called globulins. The most common indications for a serum protein electrophoresis test are to diagnose or monitor multiple myeloma, a monoclonal gammopathy of uncertain significance (MGUS), or further investigate a discrepancy between a low albumin and a relatively high total protein. Unexplained bone pain, anemia, proteinuria, renal insufficiency, and hypercalcemia are also signs of multiple myeloma, and indications for SPE. Blood must first be collected, usually into an airtight vial or syringe. Electrophoresis is a laboratory technique in which the blood serum (the fluid portion of the blood after the blood has clotted) is applied to an acetate membrane soaked in a liquid buffer., to a buffered agarose gel matrix, or into liquid in a capillary tube, and exposed to an electric current to separate the serum protein components into five major fractions by size and electrical charge: ...

Clinical pathology offers agarose gel serum protein electrophoresis as a test to investigate hyperproteinemia due to hyperglobulinemia. This test can be performed in any species, however we do not have reference intervals for all species. This test can be performed in any species, however we do not have reference intervals for all species. Protein electrophoresis separates serum proteins into different fractions - albumin and α-, β- and γ-globulins - based on their size, shape and charge (Figure 1). The acute phase proteins migrate in the α-and β- regions of the electrophoretogram and the immunoglobulins comprise the bulk of the γ-region, although IgA, IgM and specific subclasses of IgG can migrate in the late β-region. The shape of the electrophoretogram tracing and the quantity of proteins in β- and γ-fractions, provides information about the underlying disease. In healthy animals, there is a mixture of immunoglobulins, which produces a small broad curve in the γ-region (Figure 1). ...

Objective. To describe the effect of HIV serostatus on serum proteins, serum protein electrophoresis (SPEP) patterns and monoclonal bands. Setting. Inkosi Albert Luthuli Central Hospital, Durban. Design. Retrospective, anonymous analysis of routine laboratory results. Results. Monoclonal bands were not increased in HIV-positive patients, who were younger and had increased polyclonal and oligoclonal bands and total proteins when compared with HIV-negative patients.
Alpha globulins are serum proteins that have the most rapid migration during electrophoresis. This subgroup of globulins is divided into faster and slower alpha1 and alpha2-globulins.Proteins are the most abundant compounds in your serum. Amino acids are the building blocks of all proteins. In turn proteins are the building blocks of all cells and body tissues. They are the basic components of enzymes, many hormones, antibodies and clotting agents. Proteins act as transport substances for hormones, vitamins, minerals, lipids and other materials. In addition, proteins help balance the osmotic pressure of the blood and tissue.Medical Tests Analyzer labtest bloodtest What does the test result mean?
Protein electrophoresis is the most frequent measurement of the primary blood proteins: albumin and globulins (alpha1, alpha2, beta, and gamma). Under the influence of an electrical field, at a pH of 8.6, the proteins separated by an electrical charge, molecular size, and shape. Plotted on treated paper, the serum proteins form five homogeneous bands of the relative protein values in percentages. These percentages, when multiplied by the total protein concentration, reflect the absolute value of each protein. High-resolution electrophoresis allows the detection of additional bands or zones. Immunoelectrophoresis may be performed to identify the nature of suspicious bands or to monitor the progress of gammopathies, disturbances in immunoglobulin synthesis. The most rapid form of unknown band identification combines high-resolution electrophoresis with immunoprecipitation. Certain protein electrophoresis band patterns are characteristic of specific disease states. ...

Protein electrophoresis is one of Lonzas key applications. We offer a wide choice of precast gels and buffers for protein electrophoresis (SDS PAGE).
The immunoglobulins or antibodies are generally the only proteins present in the normal gamma region. Of note, any protein migrating in the gamma region will be stained and appear on the gel, which may include protein contaminants, artifacts, or certain medications. Depending on whether an agarose or capillary method is used, interferences vary. Immunoglobulins consist of heavy chains (IgA, IgM, IgG, IgE and IgD) and light chains (kappa and lambda). A normal gamma zone should appear as a smooth blush, or smear, with no asymmetry or sharp peaks.[12] The gamma globulins may be elevated (hypergammaglobulinemia), decreased (hypogammaglobulinaemia), or have an abnormal peak or peaks. Note that immunoglobulins may also be found in other zones; IgA typically migrates in the beta-gamma zone, and in particular, pathogenic immunoglobulins may migrate anywhere, including the alpha regions. Hypogammaglobulinaemia is easily identifiable as a slump or decrease in the gamma zone. It is normal in infants. ...

Background: Albumin/Globulin ratio (AG) typically declines in HIV infection due to excess immunoglobulin production by hyperactive B-cells and improves with antiretroviral therapy (ART) but may not fully reverse. The significance of AG in earlier stages of HIV disease is unclear. We compared AG with levels of interleukin-6 (IL-6) and D-dimer, biomarkers associated with mortality in HIV infection, before and after ART initiation among participants in the U.S. Military HIV Natural History Study (NHS). Methods: 194 persons in the NHS, a cohort of US military personnel and beneficiaries living with HIV, were retrospectively studied. Frozen stored sera were used to measure levels of IL-6 and D-dimer with assays validated for serum at two time points: ≥6 months post-HIV seroconversion but prior to ART initiation, and ≥6 months post-ART with viral suppression (, 50 copies/ml) on two successive evaluations. Laboratory values were analyzed using Spearman s rank correlation and Mann-Whitney U test. ...

Investigations were conducted to detect serum protein variant systems in mice and to define their genetic control. Three systems were detected. A pair of codominant alleles at a locus in the second linkage group controls electrophoretically different transferrin types. An electrophoretic difference among inbred lines in the presence or absence of a prealbumin is controlled by a single autosomal locus without dominance. A serologically detected system is controlled by a single locus closely linked or identical to the H-2 locus in the ninth linkage group. The variant component seems to be an [alpha]-globulin of high molecular weight. The principal difference between serum types is quantitative; qualitative differences are not excluded. The serum component is not detectably related serologically to H-2 erythrocyte antigens. The effects of development, pregnancy and stress upon these serum components were studied. Using these three serum variants as markers, the sera of homologous radiation chimeras ...
